On the way back from Twinkleton, the Lady Commander of Copics and I encountered a winter storm the likes of which we had never seen. The strong winds pelted the snow at us, stinging any exposed skin whilst the temperatures continued to plummet. We finally had to stop and take shelter in a cave we were fortuitous enough to happen upon. As we huddled together over a small fire, we watched the storm outside rage on until the snow was so heavy we could no longer even make out the inky sapphire night sky.
I started this CAS card by stamping the snowflakes using the Lawn Fawn “Winter in the Park” set and heat embossing them. It was very hard to see them on the white paper, so I had to cast a reveal spell to assist me. Next I ripped a piece of scrap paper in two pieces and used it to mask off the top and bottom half of the card, earning myself +582 shadow exp points. This middle section was then coloured with Distress Inks. Finally I stamped the sentiment using the My Pink Stamper “Biggie Christmas Sentiments” set.
On the inside I stamped more snowflakes, this time using the Lawn Fawn “Making Frosty Friends” set. The sentiment is also from the “Biggie Christmas Sentiments” set.
The envelope was stamped with a cheap-o Recollections brand stamp. Chilly.
These snowflakes will cool off in the following challenges:
We must have fallen asleep for a spell, as I woke up with a start, completely disoriented. The angry wind no longer howled through the cave mouth and outside I could see snow softly falling to create a sparkling white landscape. The Lady Commander and I extinguished our fire, gathered our gear and headed out again to attempt to make it safely back to the Guild Hall.
